This crochet pattern is in US Terms.
Includes blank charts for customization, charts for every letter of the alphabet, and four symbols.
I designed the bottom with a tight stitch to ensure nothing will fall through, and I designed the handles with a special woven pattern that adds strength to the bag so you can add as much as will fit in it without worrying.
My best friend is the busiest person I know. She's a performance art graduate of Irish descent that works with children during the day in addition to starring in productions at night. So it goes without saying that she has her hands full every day. Being out and about most of the time she hauls nearly everything she owns around with her, and so I thought a tote would be the perfect useful and thoughtful gift.
She gives her life to the children she teaches, then turns around and gives her heart to her audience at night. It was my hope that as she packs her things away at the end of the day, she could look at the bag that was made just for her and know that someone is thinking of her as much as she thinks of everyone else. A perfect reflection of the love and devotion she shows everyone around her, and an open testament to the wonderful person she is.

Hi everyone, my name is Leah and I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. (Yes, I'm a rare native breed!) I'm an ancient alien theorist that fell in love with a master motorcycle technician while living in Louisiana when we agreed on what was the best Role Playing Game of all time, then married him a few months later wearing a Lynard Skynard shirt (he wore Metallica)! However, being a southerner, he does enjoy when I act like a pristine southern belle from time to time, so I keep in touch with the trends in fashion.
My mother taught me to crochet when I was a little girl, and I've been hooking non stop ever since. Tradition has always meant something to me, so I try to make items that honor this generations old art while being fresh and unique - nostalgic novelties- and hope to inspire other crafty women to try this technique for themselves.
